Antisense oligonucleotides

Antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) are short oligonucleotides that localize to the nucleus and provide a pathway for gene silencing by the RNase H pathway. Phosphorothioate (PS) linkages are available to confer nuclease resistance and, therefore, enhance intracellular stability.

  • Achieve effective inhibition of gene expression in vitro or in vivo
  • Target RNA in the nucleus by using oligos with enhanced intracellular stability
  • Reduce toxicity and artifacts with flexible chimeric designs and useful modifications
